Stopped by in 2007 and it was quite the sight. Quite a different change of pace from the upscale shopping all around.
Having visited only a handful of cathedrals I don't have a lot of context but this one seemed a little darker and gloomier than others I have been, specifically St. Paul's.
Plaza around the outside is a nice place to hang out on a summer day. Fountains, sights, a little break from the 5th avenue traffic is welcome.
Grab a dog from a vendor nearby and chill out for a bit.
Excellent pizza. New york style, thin crust, large slices, focus on the basics of dough, sauce, cheeze. Good sauce, perfect crust. Favorite is the meat pizza of course.
Unlike most state capitols that echo the Washington Capitol with two wings, Wisconsin built one with four wings so that it looks like an X from above. Distinctive.
Also distinctive in that it lies in the very center point between the two lakes on a high point. Great views.
Nice state park, nice beach, but crowded, oh so crowded. If you like it quieter, head up the coast to PJ Hoffmaster.
This is a good venue and steadily getting better everytime I've attended. This will soon be a premier event and tickets will be hard to come by and expensive, so if you get the opportunity, head out now, while it's still cool.
Good zoo, lots of history here, but have to say check the weather. Cincinnati is famous for hot muggy days, and this zoo has hills and lots of walking. May take some punch out of the experience, so plan accordingly.
There's not really a bad seat anywhere. Great (and relatively cheap) seats can be had in the uppers. Or you can head to the bleachers.
I have had the opportunity to use the Diamond seats behind home plate. That is an experience in and of itself. If you have the opportunity, take it.
Now if we can just get a good playoff team going in this town again.
The heart of Cincinnati. If you are here for a visit, this is a must-do. There is always something happening, good food nearby and plenty to do, but as said, hang out for a few minutes, get your bearings and use it as a starting point for checking out Cincinnati.
Good for a couple of hours, my biggest problem is that the aesthetic of the outside is just... ugly. Especially for such a prominent position on the waterfront. Wasted opportunity. Content on the inside is fine and worth a visit.
